Treasures Dealers Taking the Acorn Antique Show by Storm!!

The Acorn Antique Show in Ogden has really become the premiere fall antique show in Utah.  Dealers come from the Midwest, Arizona, Idaho and California and other places as well.  Along with these long distance dealers, local antique dealers join the ranks to make this a show to remember.  There were five antique

dealers from Treasures for this show.  The first two picture, to the right, are from Bruce and Paula's booth. Bruce is in the North Store, while Paula is in both stores.
The pictures to the left shows the booth of Treasures North dealer, Trent.  Our regular customers will recognize his distinctive merchandise.   He always has lots of great western stuff.
Trent had the distinction of being the first dealer to have his booth cleared out after the show this time.  Cowboy or not, there are definitely no flies on him!!

Noel, whose booth is shown in the two pictures above, has the distinction of being the Treasures dealer with the longest history at the Acorn show.  Noel also has booths in both Treasures stores.

 This group of pictures shows Cathie's Merchandise at the show.  I overheard a customer who was going on and on about how amazing her displays are, and frankly I have to agree.  Cathie is in the South Treasures store.

And just for fun, I thought I would show you her cute idea for hanging Christmas ornaments on the cake stand to the left.  Unfortunately, even if you have fabulous ideas, things don't always go as planned.

Fortunately for all of us, the Acorn Show was a tremendous success.  If you missed it, you can calendar for the next show in February.  It will be held Saturday the 18th and Sunday the 19th at the Weber Country Fair Grounds.  See You There!!

...And It's Happy Haunting Time at the Antique Mall

OK, it may not be a haunted house, but it's full of wonderful antiques, and with a little creative 'haunting' by our dealer Kathy A., we are really feeling in the Halloween mood.

And when one of the eyeballs falls off the ancestral portraits, its makes a haunting 'ping pong' bouncing sound that is sort of creepy....

So don't miss the chance to come by while we are sporting our ghoulish delights ....
... because, as always, there are amazing deals to be had, and there is NOTHING scary about that.  See You Soon!

Steam Punk or Industrial Junk - Looking at it as Art!!

Steam Punk is a name that found its roots in the period of time that produced the steam engine.  It was the beginning of the industrial revolution.  Machinery was developed that did all kinds of things to serve mankind.  Most of these practical and soon to be everyday servants, were designed by artists and reflect the time period in which they were built.  Art Nouveau, Craftsman and Art Deco lines are common in equipment such as typewriters, scales and clocks... 
(Please note that all items in this blog post are available for sale at our Treasures North Store.)

Steam punk is really just the idea that these practical items were beautiful in their own way, and could be displayed as art.  Typewriters, suitcase and clocks have been popular as decor items for twenty years.

Now we add such items as scales, sewing machines, metal drawers, gears, tools and machine parts.  We look at them with new eyes, seeing past their 'fuction', and since many pieces of old machinery no longer function anyway, they become renewed, in a way, as objects d' art.

Some people are even starting to collect parts and pieces to reassemble them in different ways.  You have seen this in yard art for a long time, but now the art is coming indoors.  These parts might be assembled as head boards, funky chairs or intereting occasional tables.

We have one dealer at our mall who is assembling these wonderful lamps (above).  But if you find all this industrial metal to be just too cold for decor purposes and you want something that is really warm and fuzzy, we have that too.

What is warmer and fuzzier than a sheep, also available at the North Treasures Antique Mall building. 

But if this whole Industrial Chic discussion has peaked your interest, you may want to take a look at my personal blog, where I have just done a post about a talented friend who loves and excels at this style!

Sharing Treasures New and Old!

Here we are back again, to report that our Anniversary sale was a great success.  A special thanks to all of our followers who came in and scooped up the good deals.  We appreciate your continuing support!! Even with the deluge, the outdoor flea market was reported to be amazing.
There are some new things at the mall you may have missed.  First of all this great Victorian Parlor display.  Did you notice it when you came in for the sale?  Kudos to Kathy for putting it together!!

Then in the next booth down the first isle there are some new goodies.  This mannequin is hand crafted and charming.  She wears not only her paper mache French Novel text stripes, but a 1950's net petticoat as well.  Then there are the French text signs, trays and furniture pieces.  Don't miss them.

 Here are an assortment of the wonderful finds you will see if you come in and walk the store.  If you are looking for suitcases, green glass, an amazing quilt, an old Raggedy Ann and Andy, or that green painted butter churn barrel that has probably been on your 'must have' list for years, come and get it.

This bedroom set is now 75% off.  Three pieces of matching 1880's bedroom furniture is hard to find, so finding it at 75% off its original price of $2900 is almost unbelievable.  The bed is a double size, so no custom mattress is needed.  (Just remember that a double size bed was the 'King' of its day :-))

 And if you have a hankering for an original Bessie Pease Gutmann print, this is the place.  The Poverty and Riches print on the left is rare, and the 'Punishment and Reward' prints on the right are very popular.

With Thanksgiving on the horizon, maybe you would like to become more traditional and serve dinner on vintage china.  This is a charming and affordable set.
This charming white side table just came in this week.  Don't miss it.

Or Vaseline glass may be more your style.  This cake stand is a very rare piece, even for Vaseline glass collectors.  Don't miss it.

And last of all is this lately come beauty.  Its a yo yo quilt, if you are not familiar with them.  It's large and in great condition, I doubt it will last long. 

Thanks for coming and taking a peek at what's new and what's old at the Largest Antique Mall in Utah.
